Agreed, especially in part two where she has to deal with the effects of it stopping her daily routine. I got choked up during the scene where Gloria yells at her and Edith slaps her face.

instead of "in part 2" you mean "in the 2nd half" because that episode was first shown as an hour.

Really? Me and my family hated this episode. I know Lear was trying to make a point, but it was like raping Mother Theresa at that time. Yes, there was a huge contraversy about it.

I still don't like seeing it. If I see it's the ep on, I won't watch it. It just bothers me too much.

And yeah, the black comedy freak in me chuckled at the Sally Struthers

I still feel bad for laughing when I read that, but it just struck me as hilarious!

I always thought this storyline was a brilliant one. Whether or not we "agree" or "liked" the story, you have to admit it raised all our heads and we had to watch.

I remember reading that the attempted rape was originally intended for Bonnie Franklin on "One Day at a Time." But Norman thought it would have more impact if it were to happen to Edith.

The first part is riveting as we see just how hateful the rapist is. When Edith shoves the burning cake in his face and runs out the door, AITF became the first sitcom to ever get a standing ovation from the studio audience. Even though it was off-camera.

The second part showcases some of the best acting ever from Jean Stapleton. Edith, who has always had strong faith, is very shaken.

Whether or not we "agree" with the subject matter, the story told was brilliantly executed with some great acting.

The standing ovation may not have been seen on camera,but it certainly could be heard.

The episode's exact original airdate was October 16 1977.

This can't possibly be known. Sitcoms go back to the 1940s, the 1920s if you want to count radio. For all we know, there have been sitcoms where there were no chairs in the studio, so that every round of applause was a standing ovation.

Did Jean win an Emmy for that episode? If not she should have.
